Valentine’s Day Beer Dinners

If you haven’t made dinner plans for V-Day and you and your significant other are beer enthusiasts, you have some options. Both the Pike and Hale’s are running special brewmaster’s dinners on Thursday night.

At the Pike, $65 per person (before tax and tip) gets you three courses: choice of soup or salad, meat, seafood or vegetarian entree and one of two desserts. Each course is paired with a beer, a couple of which are special cask versions made specifically for the dinner. The beers offered include the Kilt Lifter, Naughty Nellie, Pike Pale Ale, XXXXX Stout and Old Bawdy Barleywine. You also get an amuse and an apres to begin and end the meal. The amuse of organic radishes is served with a taste of the unfermented wort used to make the Kilt Lifter earlier that day. That should be interesting. And, if you’re not into beer, Pike is also offering the same menu with wine pairings for $75.

At Hale’s, $48 per person or $85 for two (before tax and tip) gets you four courses: an appetizer and soup, the choice of meat or fish entree and a dessert. Each course is paired with a beer. The beers include the American Pale Ale, Irish Nut Brown, Belgian Dubbel, German K├Âlsch and Wee Heavy Winter Ale. I believe the Belgian Dubbel is something they don’t normally brew, while the others are part of their regular seasonal lineup.

It’s a good idea to call ahead if you’re interested. Both breweries are accepting reservations now.

    Excellent info the beer-influenced lover in us all. However, my wife and I usually stay home on Valentine’s Day and I cook her dinner. Can you recommend something to go with rosemary lamb, pumpkin squash, and corn with a hint of spice? We are also having a little chocolate cake if you have any recomendations for dessert. Thanks!
